Walk the beach with Rebecca and Jack

Rebecca and Jack met at Hillside Church in Crown Point, Indiana.  Jack proposed to her at The Dunes beach area in Gary, Indiana.  So, for their engagement shots, they decided to capture both settings.

We started the session at Hillside Church where we tried environmental portraits to show the church and it's scenery, but also some close up portraits.

The happy couple chose this hugging shot as their wall portrait....

This next image seemed to be begging for a painterly like texture to it....

I always like to have my couples in some walking shots where they are gazing at each other and unaware of the camera.  

I'm so glad Rebecca and Jack chose an engagement session as this will make their wedding images go even smoother as they will be fully comfortable with me on their big day.

Next up was The Dunes beach area off of Lake Michigan.  It was important to them to capture the area where Jack proposed and Rebecca obviously said "yes".

Here we go with the classic walking along the shore shot...

We got caught up in some Northwest Indiana traffic on the way to the beach so we arrived there later than planned.  This was okay because we ended up with some great color in the sky.

This silhouette with the blue toned sky was picked as the back cover for Rebecca and Jack's engagement book.
